I taught high school physics for 5 years in Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia. I was in a challenging and rewarding environment with high socio-economic diversity and lots of cultural diversity. I was voted teacher of the year by NHS at my school during my 4th year.

My students always scored very well on the IB Physics (SL and HL) tests. I am a patient, enthusiastic tutor with lots of resources including: simulations, online demonstrations, and many sets of practice problems/worksheets. I previously tutored while I was teaching high school.

I am returning to graduate school for engineering and I am looking to tutor part time.
